After tins  slugged m ono desperate effort * ibiut  agUin the gong ended the round at  an opportune, moment for Nelson. In  the Kith Nelson slugged and sent the  Caiifornian to the rcjpes. Above an  others could- be heard the voice of  Spider Kelly, who shouted, "brace  Jimmy!"   Jimmy obeyed by bra-  I  if  - ncnl Every way Bntt failed, -U-*  though he punished Nelson severely,  knocking��������� turndown once. With a  reach Britt delivered two most tcr-  riflic blows on tho most vulnerable  spot on Nelson's body, his stomach.  Nelson faltered a moment, then tottered. Britt ujuickiy turning his attention to Nelson's face, sent Nelson  to the floor with a hook. Nelson was  quickly on lus feet again however.  Time, after time, Nelson would glide  along after Britt much after the style  of Fitzsinimons, never clever on his  feet, but always trying to shorten  the distUnco between his oppanent  and himself. Tireless persistence in  disregard of physical punishment characterized Nelson's fighting throughout.  Britt fought most gamely at all  times, but after his spurt in tho  third round the Caiifornian lighter  weakened perceptibly to those sealed  close lo the ringside. Britt had used  all his strength, all his cleverness and  ail his blows in the early stages. He  appeared lo realize this as he took his  corner after the fourth pound as he  was unable to hurt his opponent.  Nelson also seemed to reach this decis  ion at the same time, and suhsc'r-/iient  ly made him go the harder. Except  in spots the rounds were all very  much alike. Nelson always forced  Britt to keep near his corner. The  refereeing was successful according to  popular opinic/n. In the fifth round  Britt held a momentary advantage,  staggering Nelson with a series ol  blows and making a desperate effort  to win. This was tbe first round in  which either had made any show of  mixihjj it up, Britt looking for an  opening to end the fight. Both were  bleeding at the dose of that round.  It did not seem possible lhat a fight  could be closer than the fifth round;  the succeeding period of three seconds  brougtt th**    .yiast crowd to its feet  ho appeared to tire fast- The pace  was slower and in Nelson's favor.  In the tenth and eleventh rounds Nei  son continued to wear out Britt.  In the l'2th Britt rawed suddenly and  battered Nelson for two minutec  Nelson cdvered his jaw and took most  of the a, blows on the nose, ears and  stomach. Britt wore himself otit and  finished the round tired. It became  evident to Britt's seconds after the  12th round that their man was being  beaten. They sought to. bolster up  his wavering confidence with cheerful  ! remarks, but Britt appeared to rea-  iiizo that he was beaten- In- the"  13th Brill took a beaten with game-  ness. The 14th was thc most exciting one of the fight Nelson know-  I Ing Bntt was tiring rast, had before  him the determination, to end the bat-  Iicj In five seconds he '���������had Brill  staggering about, his head lowering  and almost out. Time and again  Nelson landed on Brit Is face driving  him against the ropes. Only cleverness on Britt-s part prolonged the  light beyond the IGlh Seei.iig his ["  brother beaten down. Willie Britt  shouted     "swing,   Jimmy,     swing!"  writes that during recent drilling  operations conducted'by the Lightning Creek Oohl Crave! and Drainage Company on their property at  Wing Dam, the old channel ot Light,  ning Creek was' encountered at a  depth or 1������5 feet to lied rock. Results wore most atifying. The an.  cicnt channel is about (iO feet below  (deeper) Uie old workings.  In pay gravel  on  bedrock an     extremely  rich  prospect of gold     was  found and brought lo the surface by  means of  a vacuum   pump, which is.  one of  the appliances used  in    connection   i with the Keystone drill in  determining  underground   formations  The amount of coarse gold  recovered'was beyond expectation.  " With this     tangible result as evidence,   it   proves  conclusively     that  the - --ancient     channel   of   Lightning  Creek is     e | ally  as rich at Wing  Dam as it was further up stream in  the vicinity of Stanley,  where      it  proved  to be so phenomenally rich.  The depth and location of the old  channol being determined, this ro-  mo.es stupendous obsticies hereto  fore existing, thus future operations  will not be conducted under .adverse  conditions as formerly, but will lie  carried on with a certainty of final  success.  The new  system     inaugurated  by  Mr.  Keast in  the  installation      of  pumps     for     deep ground drainage,  thereby avoiding the cost of sinking  shafts and driving  tunnels ; for that1  purpose,  as outlined   in the Journal  in  April,  1905,  has  proven  a   complete success.    Two' pumps  by  this  new and economic method, are now  and     have  been,    in   operation -for.  more than  a month.    This   valuable  innovation has- been  thoroughly tested .and  it is safe  to say its success  is assured.  The writer,  who lias been on the  ground wjl say  with  confidence that  the comparative limited cost of   installation, ^ operation  and  the excellent results obtained,  exceeds by far  any  method     or system of diaining  deep grounds that has heretofore been  tried in  Cariboo.      In addition     t0  these pumps  above   mentioned,    another pump of  large  capacity more  than scopes with the amount of water in the working shaft,  water power being employed.  This  correspondent  does  not stale  the value     of  the    "icxtieniely rich  prospect" brought to  the surface.  It  is repotted here that its value   was  $13, which is certainly an extremely  rich     prospect  to  come  from a, six-  inch hole.    The  Journal  notes  with  great  satisfaction   that   Superintendent Keast has been successful with*  his  system���������<an  entirely new  one in  Carihoo���������of draining  by pumps tliiv-  en from the surface.���������Asheroft Journal.  iam.  among   His     fellow  prisoners as  "Uncle Bill" celebrated  yesserday his     851 h biithday.   lie is  lias  been      incarcerated  longer  than  the oldest convict  in  thc  state and  any     person now ju a new state institution.

A   south-bound  Ninth   Avenue train  crowded  with  passengers,  is  reported to have struck an open switch al  the junction  with   the Sixth   Avenue  ono.   One     car    Sen onto the .street,  turning over in its .descent and landing   bottom   upwards.      Seveial   other cars  were left  hanging from  the  structure.  The  car  which  fell was  well   filled  and  a large  number  of  persons    are  ���������eporled  injured.  Coroner Scholar  was early on the  least  ten or more.    The injured will  scene   and  said   the  dead   will  be at  number  25  to 30.,  Thc bodies of six persons have  been taken from the wreck. They  are unidentified men and one an ��������� unidentified woman. Two are those of  E. P. Scheible of New York ' and  J. N. llauspach, the latter a member of the New York Board of  Trade.  Coroner Scholar has caused the  arrest oi J. W. Johnson the conductor, and Timothy Higginson, K. Mc-  Davilt and B, Clarke, the guards.  Motorman Paul Kelly and C. A.  Jackinson the \ .Athenian on duty at  53rd. etieet and ninth avenue, has  disappeared, the police say, and cannot be. found.  Up  lo  9.30  seven  bodies had  been  tal>en  from  the wreck and the head  of     another   found   on  the  elevated  tracks.    Two   of  the   injured  are fatally hurt.  Dining the coroner's preliminary  examination Conductor J. 'V. Johnson  said:  "Coroner, ��������� you can go p . ������i the  elevated road at 59th street and  see for yourself. You will find rive  signal is yellow and green, which  means that, the south-bound north  avenue train has the right of way  and a clear track."  Owing lo an open switch the first  car^of the   ninsh    avenue train took  the switch,     -barely    staying    on the  rails .and turned     into 53 street instead of going down ninth avenue-  The  switheman,  it  is alleged, when  lie saw      his    -blunder,     turned  his  switch  back again as if to send the  li.iin on     the   straight track down  ninth avenue.    As'soon'"ds   r.his  v as  done  the   train   was   wrecked:     The  second   car  got  around the  turn hut  the  third  car,   owing to the switch  being changed,   was  thrown  off   the  track.      It fell onto the street, completely turning over  and laading upside down.    The fourth, car and   lfi.h  car also   left the rails, but  did njt  fall to  the street.     The fourth car  struck with terrific force against ihe  building at the  southwest corner of  ninth avenue and rested against the  (ire escape.    This building is  occupied   in      pari-by  Mrs.   Crow,   whose  family   was  at breakfast.    The  passengers   in   the   fourth  and  fifth cars  were able  to  save  themselves     and  get to the street in safety by climbing through the windows of Mrs.  Crow's apaTlmcnts, for the fire escapes against which the fourth car  lested,  Policeman     Edward     Moran,  who  was     injured, was standing beneath  the structuie when the accident happened.        He leaped when he heard  the crash overhead.  "I turned round  and    saw     the' car  coming tn  the  street," he said.  "It felf with        a  crash  and  opened    out.  The people'  were jammed    forward holding        to  the straps  and  mixed  up  together.  When  the sides broke out they were -  the lucky    ones.   Those  who could  not get out were the worst injured.  "I     saw    there  was  awful  work  ahead, so I ran to Fifty-first street  and)turned in an alarm. Then I sent  a call for all the ambulances in tho  city     and asked     for police reserves.  Corning back I called  for help from  all persons.   The street was strewn,  with injured     people  and  we lifted -  them     into grocery wagons, trucks,  anything handy, and hurried them to  Rockvilie  hospital     Many   of  them ,  were women.   They had fainted and  it looked as if nearly  all were dead.  "When  the firemen came they be-,  gan dragging  people  out  of thecal'. ,'  The further down they got into the'  macs of humanity the slower     the  work became and the    more serious -  were the wounds of those rescued.   '  , ������.'.The   excitement among   those  in  tbe derailed cars on  the structure,-  as they realized what had happened,  became  intense.    In  the* forward car  the    men,     deeming the motorman  was  responsible for  the  wreck, .attacked  him  and  tried - to  beat   him.  He was dragged from  his  seat,  but  he   shouted for   fair  play,   and     convinced the crowd'.that  it was     the  switchman and not he  that  was responsible.  Eight  bodies of those  billed in the  wreck were taken to   17 th street police station and  laid  out  for identiT  fieation.    The  head   which- was found  detached  from the body was    that of  Solomon   Nugast,  He  had  been sitting at    the     front  end  of the car  which jimi'ied  into the street when a  sharp,*,piecc  of  board   or   metal severed  his   head   from  his  body       as  cleanly as  though done with an axe.  Both head and  body  were found on  the tracks,  but separated by several  voids  "I am satisfied that the whole accident was due  to the criminal carelessness of the switchman," said the  coroner   this   morning.   "In   the first  place he made a mistake  in turning  the     Ninth  Avenue train  into 53rd  street,     and then added to his blunder    by     turning    the   switch  back  again in an attempt to divert     the  train into Ninth  Avenue  again. The  last   mistake  caused   the  terrPble-accident and loi-'s of life."  Comeliou A. Jackinson, the switch  man, who was blamed for the disaster, was arrested at his home "after  the accident. He maintained that he  had set the switch right..  ���������SEVERE  FIGHTING  AMONGST  TRIBESMEN  Alio-.   ...  for Aug  $239.50  LOWE,  Sec-  Every evening from now on the  footballers' will l*irn out to regular  practice.

She had gone  down twice, and was sinking the  third time.  The brave little lad without hesitation jumped into the water, which  at this spot is about 10 ft deep, and  safely brought the girl to the edge of  the stairs.  When seen by a "Paiiy Mail-' repre-  sehtative the little ones appeared non  the worse for their immersion, and  on being congratulated on his gallant  conduct the little fellow naively replied: "I couldenjt see her drown,  could I."

THE    KHEDIVE  OF   EGYPT.   x  The  Westminster   Gazette  of  a recent date eaid:  The Khedive i.s  a fine specimen of  the  alt-round   man.���������the  student    and  the 'athlete.    He  learned   English  as  a child, under >utors specially, sclcclr  ed and sent to Cairo for his benefit.  His  knowledge  of  languages  is  extensive.    During  the course of       an  audience     day it frequently happens  that he discusses  questions of  slate j  with   the  British ��������� and United Stales I  diplomatic   agents   in   excellent/    Eu-  glish,   with   the   representative      of  [���������'ranee in faultless French, and with  the .German In the choicest language  of thc Ai.s-wi.in     court.  Later,     he  conducts     affairs with  the Sultan's  representative; in  Turkish,   and   may  conclude the day by presiding over a  council  of  lv,s  ministry,   when      all  sorts      of    intricate    details ���������    are  arranged in "Arabic,   the native   tongue of Egypt,  and  one of  the most  diOicult  of   languages.. But   even this  does  not  complete 1 the  list.       Tbe  evening may  see his highn.ss at  the  theatre  listening   with  pleasure     to  and  understanding  the opera rendered in  Italian.  Thc  Khedive is a strict "Mohammedan  and as such eschews  both wines  and spirits.   His abstinence goes even  further,   for in    a country! where  everybody' smokes he will have nothing to    do Willi thc  fragrant weed.  Like1 his father, he  is  a monoganisl,  although  his   religion .allows       him  four     wives.    Ife     is  known  to   lie  greatly attached  to his consort, who  was a Circassian  lady of the Khedi-  vial  household  before her  marriage.  In -fatit,  he is essentially  a clomcstffc  man  and  is  very  fond  of  his children.    .  When at his  place at Koubch some  five miles  from  Cairo,   the  Khedive  lives   after   much   thc   same, fashion  us might  a. great English  landowner  of  the most modern   type.  He keeps  a  splendid    stud,  and   his  beautiful  horses,   English-bred  as .well   as   Arabs,  are  bis  special   pride.    On J tho  estate itself lie has  brought  into use  the  latest  things  in f American  agri-  cullurcal machinery,  and he taken an  active part in  the supervision  of h s  numerous' farms  and .cotton   plantations  in the Nile Valley���������from which  indeed,  he derives the large  part of  his vast private wealth.  His  official  income  in ������100,000 a year,  and    an  eqaial  amount  js  paid   to  the-other  members  of the Khedive  family.  DEATH  OF  A  GREAT  JiASUTO   TIGHTER.  Lerothodi,   J.usuto,  chief,   and  last  of the great native rulers,   is dead.  I lis  death   on  Saturday  last was re-  Ported from  Aliwal North,  says  the  Daily /Mail.  Desperate    fighter,  keen   diplomat,  and able  ruler,  Lerothodi  made   lus  mark in the history of South  Africa  from  the  time he became chief.   He  was   leader   of  a nation   of   200,000  people jealous  of their freedom, born  fighters  keen  for  battle,   and   in  the  Iroublors    limes     when  the govern,  ment of Basuloland  was sliiTting between   Cape   Colony and   thc  Imperial   government,      Lerothodi proved  his   leadership.   He  was  a big,  stout  man,      who in his  later  days   wore  European  clothes,   even in   the kraal.  He was described as t*Le "Pai'amoun  Chief,"   of   the  Basulns,   a' position  largely due to thc fact   that he  was  descended   from  1he  chief who  founded the  tribe   in  the eaily   pffrl      of  the  century.  Lerothodi was parliculai ly prominent in the "Gun War" of l.SSO,  which was an unsuccessful attempt  by Cape Colony to disarm the Basil tos. When a great mecliiu; ,of chiefs  and people was c-illr-d to the Residency, Lerothodi professed much loyalty to the Queen.'  Mis.

Mrs.   Barkly  described the  nerxl   f.'*nc she saw Lerothodi,  when  his  behavior   was  diffcienl.   -She was  waiting at the court house to     receive him and  the  other chiefs.  "Presently,"   she  says,   "hundreds  :;n 1  hundreds    of mounted   Basutos,  with Lerothodi   at theh- head,     and  I armed   to  the  teeth,   dished   past  us  into  lhe  little  town   al Ma'eleng at  full  gallop,   the   spears,   battle-axes,  and    assesj.ias    gleaming  in  the sun,  shouting as  they rode  in the     war  cry of the Basutos."
